Nice!
If you like Linux, raise your hand. If you don't, raise your standards.

It is very early days. It really has just been released. I can say however that I haven't had any problems at all at this stage.

The installation was seemless. The installation of drivers was seemless. The audio settings worked straight away. I was able to connect to the internet.

I have been able to install all the software I require.

It has been such an easy experience thus far and the theming is excellent. There isn't really all that much to review software wise but the way Peppermint integrates web applications with desktop applications is really nice.

I highly recommend this. One of the best distributions that I have reviewed recently.

Very nice review, I think he really likes it!  8)

Now that is a PROPER review  :)

I'm waiting for someone to order it on a USB stick and do an "unboxing".

Hi there!

Having read this review I decided to give Peppermint 7 a try after having enough of my epic struggle with the latest Ubuntu release and its drag upon my 2009-ish desktop system.

After a week or so I can admit that I am in love with Peppermint!!!

Excellent work  :)

Yup! Being fed-up with the bloat of Ubuntu I was immediately sold by this Peppermint feature (and by having only ~250 MB of RAM consumed before getting to the serious work).
